Below you find the current members of the lab. In blue are the members of the MPIMPG group, in green the members of the FUB group.
Knut ReinertHead of group
Head of the group. My research is influenced by the training I received as an algorithmicist at the Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken, Germany and by my subsequent research as a senior scientist at Celera Genomics in Rockville, MD, USA. I aim to enable translational research in computationally based life sciences by removing existing (communication) gaps between theoretical algorithmicists, statisticians, programmers, and users in the biomedical field.I obtained my Diploma in Computer Science from Saarbrücken University and my PhD from the Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science in Saabrücken.
Xiao LiangPhD student (MPIMG)
Temesgen DadiPhD student (MPIMG)
Temesgen H. Dadi works in Comparative metagenomics of microbial communities using machine learning methods. He graduated from Arba Minch University, Ethiopia in Computer Science and IT (B.Sc.) and received his Masters degree from University of Trento, Italy in Bioinformatics. Currently he woks in the InfectControl 2020 project with partners from the VetMed department.
Leon KuchenbeckerPhD student (Charité/MPIMG)
René RahnPhD student (FU Berlin)
Stefan BudachPhD student (MPIMG/Marsico lab)
Anja KasseckertAdministrative assistant
Sabrina KrakauPhD student (MPIMG)
Julianus PfeufferPhD student (Tübingen/FU Berlin)
Hannes HauswedellPhd student (MPIMG)
Hannes Hauswedell obtained B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Bioinformatics from Freie Universität Berlin, but he also spent some time studying in Uppsala, Sweden and in Shanghai, China. He is interested in efficient software design in principal and the applicability to natural sciences in particular. He also likes mountains and the sea.
Jongkyu KimPhD student (MPIMG)
Marcel EhrhardtPhD student (IPCC)
Christopher PockrandtPhD student (MPIMG)
Christopher Pockrandt holds B.Sc. and M.Sc. degress in Computer Science from Freie Universität Berlin. He spent part of his studies at the National University of Singapore and the National Taiwan University. As an IMPRS student of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Genetics he is currently doing his Ph.D. in bioinformatics focussing on string indices (especially the FMIndex) with applications in lncRNA search.
